Join us and the Taiaiako’n Historical Preservation Society for a fall gathering to honor the Earth and the Life-giving wonder of Creation. As Thanksgiving holiday approaches, guided by Elder Frank Miller (Mohawk, Six Nations), Laureen (Blu) Waters (Cree/Metis/Micmac) and Donna Powless (Cayuga, Six Nations) we invite a Re-Storying that acknowledges High Park as Indigenous Land, the long work that Indigenous peoples have done to protect the Earth, and the work left yet to do.

As we gather around a sacred fire and give thanks to the Earth, we renew our treaty relations and friendship. Songs and drumming will draw our hearts together as the days grow shorter. We will contemplate, affirm and show our care for the Earth with a planting of seedlings in OurSpace garden, we will share in a homemade Feast, and in the tradition of potluck you are invited to bring a dessert offering (if you have capacity).

Come and celebrate all things spooky at this fun family Halloween event. This all outdoor event will begin with a hike through the woodlands. We'll stop to learn the not-so-scary truth about owls, spiders, bats, decomposers, Witch Hazel trees and more. After the hike your group can warm up around our campfire and make Halloween themed art. We will provide roasting sticks, hot chocolate and marshmallows for everyone and you are welcome to bring any additional items you would like to roast. Fun for all ages! Costumes are strongly encouraged but optional.

Note: Registration opens Tuesday, October 4.
